Your Guide to the Rhett Gallery in Beaufort, SC
About the Gallery
The Rhett Gallery is located at 901 Bay Street in downtown Beaufort and has been a landmark of the town for years. Artists Bill and Nancy Rhett decided to open a small Beaufort gallery in 1981 as a permanent place for their exhibits and fragile carvings. They began selling a few antique maps from their large collection which were popular among locals alongside the couple’s art.
As their business prospered, the Rhetts outgrew their gallery and decided to move to a larger space on Bay Street. Today, the renovated gallery is home to the work of four generations of the Rhett family, including Bill and Nancy’s art, their son William Rhett’s work, and prints made from the work of Bill’s father, mother, and grandfather.
Ways to Enjoy the Gallery
Every corner of the Bay street gallery is filled with paintings, prints, and carvings skillfully crafted by the Rhetts. You can purchase their art and beautiful antique maps in their gallery or call to place an order.
